Yes, I can change the entire fuel calibration with just the change of a 
chip.   Soon, I'll be ablke to change it on the fly with my laptop.

Actually, you are right.   The back side of the diaphragm in the presure 
regulator is connected to the intake manifold, so as boost pressure 
rises, fuel pressure also rises exactly (more or less) the same amount.   
This is becasue the boost pressure is also at the outlet of the 
injectors, so you nede more fuel pressur eto maintain the expected fuel 
flow through the injector.
